Hi topband fanatics,

What a great test this one is!!!  Conditions couldn't have been better,
either.  Reminds me of the feeling on 10M at the sunspot peak! (Well, OK,
but it is SIMILAR, isn't it?)  The quarter-wave elevated balloon-supported
vertical worked well, as usual.  And as usual, I had trouble hearing.  I
wonder if Milt knows of any land for sale near his QTH - it sounds like a
nice quiet place to work topband.  My QRN level was S7 most of the night.
My apologies to those ops whose sigs I just could not pull out of the noise.

You can count me in again next year!  73,

Scotty WA2DFI
